Exactly...if you just rush through the game it'll be over fast, but if you take your time, search for secret areas and thoroughly explore, the game will be much longer.

I beat FPS games in about 15 to 20 hours, while enjoying them. I dont sit around and stare at the background during the game... I try to keep with its pace.

the 75+ hours of gameplay must mean Gabe taking a few steps, stopping, taking a bite of something, taking a few steps, stopping, taking a drink, etc...

20 hours for a FPS is great, especially if the game can be played multiple times...

I dout stalker will hit the 40 mark, maybe 30... but thats even giving it a stretch... My guess is that the main length will be due to the open end aspect of it, since you can basically GTA it and not do any missions...

Forgive me for saying so, but when some one says that doom 3 and far cry are garbage campared to his fav? It really sounds ignorant. Ive played some garbage games, and none of the 3 are it. (doom 3, far cry, and hl2). a whole lot of hard work went into those games. word cant describe what i think about those typs...

Just got my new PC Gamer. Wow, I'm wanting this game again.

Respect to Valve for putting out such an amazing game in spite of all the delays and flak they have been getting.
